Welcome to Alamogordo High School!
Testing information from Principal Heaton:
Alamogordo High School will start End of Course testing during this week of May 15th. We hope that all our students have a successful end of the year testing experience. This year the state has added state generated End of Course testing. These tests are on–line, for almost all subjects, across grade levels, and as a consequence we have to spread out the testing.
We will begin on Monday in all English Language Arts classes (this will be a regular bell schedule), beginning with the writing section of the final. The second part will continue on that class’s scheduled testing day.
Tuesday, during regular Seminar, Seminar testing will be administered. Then on Wednesday the 17th and Thursday the 18th, senior testing will begin in classes for seniors only and in classes that are dominated by seniors. In those classes, the underclassmen will also be tested. Some seniors in classes dominated by underclassmen will have to take those tests on the underclassmen testing days.
Starting on Friday the 19th underclassmen testing begins with 1-3 periods for selected classes, continuing on Monday the 22nd with 5-7 periods for selected classes. The 23rd the remaining 1-3 classes will test and we will finish on the 24th with the remaining 5-7 classes. There will be make-up time after the last testing period each day. Students only have to attend during their testing times. There will be a supervised area for any student that wants to remain on campus when not testing and those who need to wait for the bus. Buses will run at regular time.
Starting in Seminar classes this week students have been working on building their individual testing schedule.
To see schedules of time and periods and other testing information please go to the tab above under Student News or Senior Class Information Page. You can also view the calendar.
Again, we want all students to have a successful testing experience and we hope you have a rewarding summertime with your families.
If you have any questions please contact the school. Have a great day in Tiger Country!
